Better Energy Through Innovation
Partnering with Novatek, Russia’s leading independent natural gas producer, we are building an innovative plant under Arctic conditions North of the Polar Circle with three gas liquefaction trains and a total capacity of 16.5 million tons per year. A first in the world year-round Arctic seaport facility will also be created for up to 16 specially designed ice-breaker LNG carriers that will operate via the Northern Sea Route.
Better Energy Through Commitment
This challenging project, scheduled to produce first LNG in 2017, embodies Total’s commitment to making energy better by combining technical excellence, innovation and motivated experienced people. It will help bring about the responsible energy future that the world needs.
